You receive some wonderful, improbable, hoped-for good news. How do you celebrate?
Ha, it’s been so long since I’ve had had some really wonderful good news that made me want to celebrate. Yeah, atleast not since 2009. Anyways, suppose I do get some wonderful, improbable, hoped-for good news I, like most people, will want to celebrate it. And my style of celebration may not be great compared to others but this is the simple way that I roll.
First, on receiving or getting to know the good news, I will smile and take a moment to myself to let the news and overall great feeling sink in. Then I will let those who want to congratulate me or join in the celebratory feelings shower me with wishes. Next I make sure that I have enough money for what I want to do and if not I go and get some. Then I will check – is this a celebration for friends and colleagues as well? In that case I tell the ones that I am treating to pile up in cars, bikes or taxis and head on to the restaurant in question. Once we get there, food is on me! Maybe a few drinks as well. We’ll talk, we’ll laugh and we’ll stuff ourselves and then waddle our way back home and store the good memory in our bank of good times.
Otherwise if it is family I will get some good food, check on the drinks menu and then call up my folks. We’ll sit in the comfort of my home and watch some tv while we wait for my sister’s family to come by. We’ll all gather round the tv on the sofas and eat for a while, enjoying the quite company and the good food.
